Identify Your Work Content Skills

Work content skills, also known as technical skills, are task-specific. They are the skills you must have in order to accomplish a given job.

For example, if you are a computer programmer, you must know how to program computers. If you are a cashier, you must know how to operate a cash register.

Think of all the jobs or assignments you have ever had. What specific technical skills do you have? Try to think of at least 10 skills - more if you can. List them below.
